The offensive leader and defensive anchor, Wall is easily going to get himself in this discussion. He’s a huge part of the success of the Wizards on both sides of the ball, and will have a fantastic stat line as a result of that.
After last year’s snub where he was not even selected to the All-NBA Third Team, Wall was very vocal. He would use the disappointment of not being selected to make himself work harder through the offseason. When the Wizards open the season with the Orlando Magic on October 28, the Kentucky product will turn out as one mad man. The guy guarding him must be scared.
Even though his statistics are going to improve yet again in 2015, Wall doesn’t worry about anything other than wins. If the Wizards have the ability to reach 50 wins in 2015-16, voters will notice how he has had the opportunity to win games by producing shots for not merely for himself, but for teammates.
Wall may have missed out on a single MVP vote this past year, but there’s no way he won’t be in the race this season. Winning the MVP is a hard task, but his name will for sure be in the discussion.
